Pneumatic convey systems are used to transfer powders, plastic granules and many other types of dry bulk materials from one process area to another through negative conditions, known as vacuum or positive conditions, called pressure. These systems are made up of four basic elements, that are an air source, a material feed device, a convey line, and an air-material separator. The best types of materials that are easily moved through a pneumatic conveying system are plastic pellets and resin, just to name a couple. Pneumatic systems are not used to convey short distances, as it requires the same amount of equipment to convey a few feet as it does to transport hundreds.

Compared to mechanical conveyors, pneumatic systems help ease the routing of bulk materials transfer routes throughout a plant. Because the conveyor line consists of simple pipe, they usually require a small amount of floor space and the line can flow in both horizontal and vertical directions. Usually, the transport line can be attached to existing structures, rafters and columns,  which eliminates the need for special foundations and support frames. Convey lines can be easily adapted to existing equipment, and can be built to avoid or go around obstacles.
